Emily Chappell’s Epic Tales of Cycling Adventure

The inspirational adventurer and endurance cyclist Emily Chappell shares stories from her epic travels and remarkable life story.

Emily Chappell was not sporty at school, but when she reached her mid-20s, she began to make up for lost time. First, she gave up her office job to become a London cycle courier. Then, in 2016, she cycled 4000km in 13 days, from Belgium to Turkey, to become the first woman home in The Transcontinental race. Her account of the experience, ‘Where There’s a Will’, part-travelogue, part-open-hearted memoir, was nominated at the 2020 Daily Telegraph Sports Books of the Year awards.

Emily has also completed many other long-distance cycling trips (Anchorage to Seattle in midwinter temperatures going down to minus 25; Wales to Japan; across Iceland) and we are delighted to welcome her to the Kirk Theatre to discuss her epic adventures and all matters arising, in an evening of evocative and inspiring conversation with former Procycling magazine writer, Duncan Steer.

An evening for adventurers, armchair adventurers and anyone interested in exactly how someone can drastically change their path through life, several times over.

There will be a chance to ask your own questions.
